Evelyn Paradis of Colchester said she couldn’t believe it when she realized she had won one of the $10,000 top prizes playing the CT Lottery scratch game, “10X Cash 13th Edition.”
“Sometimes I play, but not all the time. This morning, I decided to buy a ticket. I went home and was scratching the ticket…when I got a 3X and then a 4X (prize multiplier). Then I scratched the prizes off. The 3X multiplied a $2,000 prize and the 4X multiplied a $1,000 prize. I was shocked. When I called my daughter at work and told her I won $10,000, she thought I was joking. My kids all thought I was joking,” Evelyn said laughing.
Evelyn certainly has a good heart, as she plans on donating some of her good fortune with the Connecticut Children’s Medical Center. “I’m going to buy toys for the children,” Evelyn said. “I want to pay it forward and help families that really need it.”
